You Think You Got It Bad, Im In Sydney, Australia, which is pretty much the a**-end of the star trek franchise.
I've never heard of a convention in the past 5 years in Sydney, and I'm NOT going to New Zealand!
Anyone who has any info about any conventions in Aust, or anyone who would like to have one in Aust, PM me.

I live in Plattsburgh New York (and so you don't need to get out a map that is as far north-east as you can go and not be in canada)

the closest convensions that I'm aware of are in Teronto and NYC, (so far that it would definately be an overnight afair, and that would be quite expensive)

there aren't any conventions here, but I think I know why... I live in Iceland.

But I still would love to go to a convention...

I live in Kingsport TN. Next to Medaview Convention Center (not sure on spelling), there are never any conventions anywhere in the area, and it would be great to have one here.

I live in Toronto, Canada. We used to have a few Creation Conventions here back in the early 90's. But now it's just Toronto Trek 17 or something., I went 2 years ago and it's lame. It's good for being fan run, they have decent guest speakers. The dealer room is like a garage sale, and it's more Bab-5 and PRey and other non trek shows. Now don't get me wrong sci0fi is good but it's called Toronto TREK for a reason.

I am trying to head to Vegas in the Summer to get a taste of a real convention.

In which part of the country do you live in? For me there is a Trek convention every year in Vulcan, Alberta. I tried to get to it whenever I can but it's difficult to do so due to my work schedule.

Maybe you're not looking hard enough?

I also now live in an area where I can not find a convention to attend this year.  I used to live close to where a great convention was and still is alive every summer.  But alas I moved for personal reasons and now I am in withdrawal.  I presently live about 45 miles straight south of Louisville, Kentucky.  I guess that I am too far out in the country.
